At just 15 years old, actress Mackenzie Foy has already carved out a solid resume thanks to her work in two Twilight films and her standout turn in Christopher Nolan’s sci-fi epic Interstellar. Foy spent four years voicing the “little girl” in the upcoming animated feature The Little Prince which premieres on Netflix August 5.
The feature is a partial retelling of Antoine de Saint-Exupéry’s inspiring story and also deals with the girl’s personal journey as she’s introduced to the Little Prince’s universe.
During our interview with Foy, she talked about her close collaboration with The Little Prince filmmaker Mark Osborne.
“The book,which I new about the film, meant a lot in a way that it taught you about imagination and love, and death, and how to deal with it. After it, it just makes me think of all the memories. When I read it, I think about all the silly voices (Mark) did when we were filming and all of the great times that I had.”
